How many points is a Bludger in Quidditch?

The Bludgers don’t score points, they’re purely a disruptive force. The Quaffle scores 10 points per hoop and the Snitch scores 150 when it is caught. “This ball’s called the Quaffle,” said Wood. “The Chasers throw the Quaffle to each other and try and get it through one of the hoops to score a goal.

Beater. These players carry bats around for the sole purpose of beating the bludgers attempting to hit, or distract the opposing teams chasers in order to make them drop the ball. There are two beaters per team.

Can you catch the snitch and still lose?

Every goal is worth 10 points and the team whose Seeker captures the Golden Snitch earns an additional 150 points. This means if a team is more than 15 goals ahead, it can still win even if their Seeker fails to catch the Snitch.

Why did Harry stop playing Quidditch?

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, because of the ongoing battle with Professor Umbridge, Harry was banned from the Quidditch team along with Fred and George Weasley; so Angelina did have to engineer a mid-season replacement for her Seeker and both Beaters.
